I used the Simplicity Elizabethan pattern that they issued after The Tudors came out. The lines are actually really good on this one - no princess lines to draft out. If you are looking for introductory late period pattern, you could do a lot worse.
I added shoulder wings of the same red fabric and made the sleeves detachable and reversible and a very quick petticoat with a portion of the trim fabric as a forepart.

I lent her a few necklaces and earrings and sent her off to be the belle of the Elizabethan ball.
